Description

The Emergency Response Procedure (ERP) was initially developed to help victims within hours of a terrorist attack, but can be applied in the minutes and hours following any trauma. Often, at that time, the patient has difficulty in orienting to the present after having experienced danger to self, family or friends. When the clinician reorients a person to their present state of safety with ERP, she is assisting in a crucial task of adaptation by helping the victim's brain to understand that the danger has passed and the person is safe in the present.
